DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke 8-11-14

I’m with the Navy and Marines in Newport, RI this week, one of my favorite gigs of the year. It’s hard to believe it’s that time again, because of course the year has flown by. Less than 10 days left with my kiddo before she returns to school, so I’m especially grateful she’s traveling with me (she’s an excellent and experienced traveling companion, so it’s relatively effortless). Pretty quiet around our house this past weekend, so plenty of time to keep tabs on my social media feeds. And lots of news to stay on top of, so here’s what’s caught my eye since last we spoke:

Turn on, retweet, tune out

Again. Heartbreaking. Check out #IfTheyGunnedMeDown for some powerful commentary on media portrayals.

Oh, right: HIPAA.

What to ask on those college visits

One reason crime stats don’t tell the complete story

I need to try these

A pretty compelling read

This whole thing is a mess

Oh man, I *love* this
